Nuova edizione riveduta, corretta e aggiornata al 2003 di questa monumentale opera, ora di 560 pagine, che prende in esame oltre 2 secoli di storia americana illustrando a colori l’evoluzione delle onorificenze e decorazioni militari dal “Badge of Military Merit” del 1782 alla “Global War on Terrorism Service Medal” del 2003. Le medaglie e decorazioni vengono illustrate da entrambi i lati con una illustrazione anche dei bordi e di ogni onorificenza viene data la storia completa. Opera indispensabile per i collezionisti e gli appassionati di decorazioni militari americane in generale.

This monumental work spans over two centuries and illustrates in striking color the evolution of U.S. Military decorations from 1782 to the Global War on Terrorism Service Medal in 2003. In this comprehensive reference, not only are the obverse, reverse, and appropriate rim markings illustrated in full color, it also states eligibility for the award and gives historical background. An added treat are dozens of period photos of the decorations being worn. This new expanded edition is a result of continued years of research and upgrading of photographs, and has 176 more pages than the first edition. The authors have also been able to expand the coverage of known rim number styles and number ranges for Army, Navy, and Marine Corps campaign medals. With modern digital technology, all medals and ribbons have been color-corrected to give you the most accurate and detailed images. Although the first edition was highly praised, this new edition is without a doubt the best book ever done on the subject!
